You went away in search of a better life
To the sea and found the death
You went away in search of a better life
To the sea and found the death
How hypocrites they are
They bring you already sick and with very much pain
Mum ran around the world
Looking for doctors and medicines

At the seashore, at sunset
In the silence, I fall asleep
When I woke up, I dreamed
That I love you, I love you
At the seashore, I am waiting for you
At the seashore, I will be waiting for you
I am looking for, I am looking for, where are you? My heart could not bear, illness, lovesickness, disease of youth
At the seashore, at sunset
At the seashore, I am waiting for you my love
At the seashore, when the sun sets

I commented to them on my illness
I commented to them about my health last time
I will sing this song
I sing it for reminding me
I went to Tegucigalpa and to the United States
And doctors didn’t find my illness
I will sing these verses
I will sing for reminding me
This is ours

I don’t know yet how to govern my canoe
I can’t repair its flaw
I can’t repair it 

Brother, I will change place
My friend, I will change course
I am very embarrassed
I couldn’t repair my canoe
It is better to abandon it in the landing stage

I can’t repair my canoe
It is better to abandon her, set aside her of my life
I leave her forever, today I leave her forever
Hai brother, Hai brother, Hai brother
It is better to abandon her in the landing stage

What will we cultivate tomorrow?
Where will we cultivate cassava to make cassava bread?

My two fake golden teeth
And so have a beautiful smile
Buy me some nice shoes
Give me money to buy a dress
And make my dance dress
And go to enjoy with my friends

Every night Dondo awakes crying out for hunger
What is his problem? What will become of me?
Find yourself a place with this friend of yours
Because my house he shall never again enter
Now I believe I'm going to die
I'm having a miscarriage
Go away from me, daughter
Find yourself a place with this friend of yours
Because my house he shall never again enter

Father, where are you? I am waiting for you
Pelican, Pelican, give me your wings for me to fly there
The sun sets over the horizon and I am waiting for you, Father
The wind is blowing. I am here and you have still not arrived
You have not arrived, Father. You have not arrived. I am here on the seashore
waiting for you
Father, where are you? Out at sea and I am here on the shore
Waiting for you, oh father! Where are you?
Oh, Father! How sad I am here this afternoon
Sister, Mother, where is my father? I am waiting for him.

Why is it that organizations are more powerful than the people?
Why is it that the leaders are more powerful than the people?
Look at the children in the streets

Brother, I am ill
Dear Brother, I am ill
I have tossed and turned in my bed
With this ailment in the presence of my family
I have spoken with my children
Dear Brother when I pass away
They must have a band at my funeral
It is my little ones I'm worried about
It is my children I'm worried about

If I told you about the pain in my heart,

what would become of me

I would be tied

I would be tied up and taken to the prison

My child, because I am not prepared, I do not deserve it

Because I am not well read, I do not deserve it

I do not deserve it so they gossip about me

I will not say a word, my child, lest I be the guilty one

I will not say a word lest I be the guilty one

The newspapers, I will die and leave all of this behind

When I die, sing me my song

So that I may go never to return for a verse

So this is how the sun sets

So this is how the sun goes down

How I wish I could accompany it

Look at me. I am an orphan

I can no longer whistle, my name precedes me

As a songster, I will sing this verse just the same

I go downtown my name is everywhere

I go to the neighborhood and it is just the same

Just where do I go with my name
